I like to play Crazy games online, are free and now many of them look like video games like Kungfu panda who look like a video game.Can be played on Internet Explorer as it is an unity 3d game.

Super Mario is the best! Why? It's a story about the usual person who was able to become a hero! I really like this kind of plot!

The first game console that I had was Dandy 1995 with a basic cassette with 500+ games such as super Mario, tanks, etc. It was necessary to change those cassetes with friends or organize home tournaments. No one could imagine about the network game online

Now I thik about this time with nostalgia and for me there are still TOP three games from childhood: Super Mario, Contra and Street Fighter.

What's your favourite old game?

Chess, backgammon, billiards, and darts.

Yeah, my thoughts went to backgammon first.

my favorite old games are GTA III and then after that GTA IV. the first 3d world new york with the different gangs, i didnt play vice city that much and one time got halfway through san andreas. i would always come back to iii. i never beat it cause the game wouldnt let me with cheats activated.

then when iv came out i played that forever, i loved the dlc. if you go to the internet cafe early in game i think they say they were working on the game seven years. 90 missions a bunch of extra stuff and cinematic taxi rides when you switch to camera. V only had 67 or 69 missions was fun you could pimp out rides get lights under cars, i dont think was as good as IV.

For me it's gotta be Blast Corps for the N64.

Looking back on it, it's a rather simple game with butt ugly graphics but that doesn't mean it ain't fun. (Plus it was made in '97 so it can slide

Also up there with my favorite oldies would be System Shock 1, Quake, Unreal, Shin Megami Tensei 1 and Megaman X1

I have a soft spot for Phantasy Star 2 on the Genesis, it was the first RPG I played, and the story aspect, the 'carrot on a stick" way that leveling up and gaining new abilities and gear was incentive to keep playing.

Everquest was another favorite, made tons of new friends (and partied down in Vegas at an EQ convention in (I believe) 2006 with online friends from all over the world.

And the secrets and everything about Super Mario World on the SNES, the first Mario game i played

I love seeing this thread pop back up from time to time but I guess I need to chime in.

Coin-Op: I had many I liked for various reasons
Gauntlet - Elf needs food badly.
Xenophobe - 2 to 3 screen side scrolling adventure, oh yeah.
Space Harrier - In the sit down hydraulic booth
But the absolute all time favorite was Demolition Derby, often the sound card was burnt out so I did my own sounds.

Atari 2600: lots of great titles already but I got to give credit to the one that became part of my vernacular as a kid
River Raid

Intellivision: There were only three games as far as I was concerned
Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Cloudy Mountain
Tron: Deadly Discs

NES: Legend of Zelda hands down

Sega Genesis:
X-Men - played with my buddy so much we didn’t even turn the TV on until clearing the first level.

Mac: lots of games for the Mac, don’t kid yourself
TIE Fighter
And a great shareware game: Escape Velocity - which holds up as superior to many games today for how large and open sandboxed it was. I’d stack it up to Fallout 3 on the replay scale.

One Must Fall - hands down best network game.

I think it was called Barbarian. You fought in an arena and usually cut off your opponent’s head. Loved it for the animated gore.
There were lots of great games. You learned to program in BASIC. The C64 and Atari 400/800/1200 were really the best of times. But we didn’t know that then. We lost a lot with Win95 and OSX taking us away from coding. Some will say what about the Mac Classic OS 7/8/9? You had Apple Script that you could have learned to do more.

All time best game regardless of age:
Fallout 3 - with the GECK, Blender and GIMP you can add to the game by building mods. You could replace the whole game with a mod, all new sounds and artwork is you wanted and make it Star Wars as a young Jedi building a lightsaber and going on an adventure. It would take far more work than I am willing to do. But it can be done. I helped make quite a mod where as just background fluff different girls would dance to “their favorite song” if it was played on the jukebox in a bar. More than just playing a game, that for me puts the power of the game in your hands for others. Making mods is nothing new. Making that level of gameplay and atmosphere n your hands is kinda new.

Best game FO3, because you can make it whatever you want it to be.

Final Fantasy IX is a classic!

Any Infocom game for the C64. Text only games. Zork 1,2 and three although I only solved 1. That was hard enough with that bloody thief always killing me and that damned maze.

Suspended. Mmmmmmhhh, a really great one. Suspended animation while you control robots who only have one sense to each and they have to do your bidding to save the planet. Infidel, solving the pyramid puzzle was awesome even if you died to win the game.

Never could figure out The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. Even though Infocom games were a precursor to the AI we know and love today I still couldn't figure out how to speak to other characters. Only got as far as the machine that gave Arthur Dent a drink that is almost, but not entirely, unlike tea.

Castle Wolfenstein for Apple 2Plus. Green screen game but an awful lot of fun BITD.

Other's, from the '80's, stand up games.

Robotron 2084. Frakking game gave me many a heart attack. It was so fast that it really got the adrenaline rushing, not unlike....

Tempest. Simply bad ass.

Pengo. A largely unknown game. You're a penguin who has to either line up three ice blocks or use the other ice blocks to crush the "things" that are chasing you. I won a bunch of rock 'n roll mirrors, Ozzy, Scorps and Rush to name three by getting the high score for the week at my local arcade. Can't remember the name of the song used in the game but it's familiar.

ETA: It's the popcorn Song, IIRC.

Robotron and Tempest were bad ass.
Nex Mechina on PS4 is a Robotron on high speed chicken feed.
The Tempest 4000 is good but not the same with joysticks, needs that trackball

In the USSR there was a personal computer BK-0010.01 (БК-0010.01) which had 16 kilobytes of RAM (plus 16 kilobytes of screen memory).

Here are a few of the games I've played on it.
